Trump Talks About Diplomacy Like Everyone Does

OK he's always extra stupid about it, but he doesn't really sound any different than any number of foreign policy "experts" who talk about diplomacy and agreements as if they're all about status and face saving and who bowed and who had the stronger handshake, rather than people and states with concrete interests (justifable or not). Some talk about the big swinging dick contests using bigger words and a more somber tone, but usually that's how they talk about it.

And nobody cares about human rights issues.
